Bontrager adds new trail and XC wheels to complete industry-leading MTB offering

Bontrager has a rich history driving innovation in the world of mountain bikes, especially when it comes to wheels. Keith Bontrager was the one of the first to bring lightweight designs to the fledgling MTB world, and we continue his legacy of innovation every day, pushing modern technology to redefine what’s possible with superior materials and design. Today, we’re even challenging Keith’s age-old adage of “Strong, Light, Cheap—Pick Two.” Nostalgia aside, Bontrager Wheelworks has been busy dreaming up, engineering, and testing the crap out of the new wheelsets below.

Trek Bikes Super Commuter- +8- +9- Hybid- Commuter- E-bike- electric Bike

Goodbye, car. Hello, Trek Super Commuter +8 and +9- Now available from Blazing Bikes the U.K’s premier Trek mountain bike and e-bike store.

Trek Super Commuter+ 8

Trek Super Commuter+ 8

Trek Super Commuter+ 9

Trek Super Commuter+ 9

There’s no reason to hit the snooze button when your morning commute feels like a dream. Super Commuter+ is the electric bicycle that makes getting where you need to go exactly where you want to be.

The Super Commuter+ pairs our most advanced e-bike technologies with Bosch’s longest-lasting battery for a ride that redefines the experience of getting around on two wheels.

Inspiring design and performance

Lights, mudguards and a powerful motor are integrated with thoughtful design details for a ride that’s as beautiful as it is convenient.

Ready for any trip

This bike actually can replace your car. With sustained speeds to go long distances, and the stability to ride anywhere, the Super Commuter+ is perfect for every journey.

Take the long way home

Integrated SuperNova lights maximise visibility, while the long-distance battery lets you ride longer, stay stronger and explore more of the world around you.

Control and comfort at any speed

The Super Commuter+ is no hybrid with a battery slapped on. Wide, high-volume tyres are paired with hydraulic disc brakes to deliver confident handling at all times.

Super Commuter+ FAQ

What models of Super Commuter+ are available?
Super Commuter+ 8, 11-speed, max speed 25 kph
Super Commuter+ 9, NuVinci N380 internal gear hub, max speed 25 kph

Which BOSCH system is used?

8 & 9 – Bosch Performance CX Line – 500-watt hour battery (think – size of the fuel tank) – 250-watt motor (think – size of the engine)
What is the range?
8 & 9 – Range depends on several variables like terrain, wind, rider weight and riding preferences. It can vary by as much as 65 km-235 km.
Bosch has a handy e-bike range calculator that will help you estimate range for specific riding conditions. Range Cockpit
How long does it take to charge?

Approx. 3-5 hours.
What does it come with?

The bike comes equipped with custom mudguards, a rear rack, SuperNova headlight and rear light, a rear-mount kick stand, plus a charger and key set for the battery.
With its speed, how will I stop?

This bike goes fast, so it needs to stop fast. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors do so confidently.
Why did we choose the Supernova light?

In a word – POWER. The SuperNova M99 Pure+ light throws 1,100 lumens down the road! Remember, this bike is FAST. With this light, you’ll see where you’re going before you get there. It also has a daytime running light that helps others to see you coming when it’s light out and a rear light that is on at all times.
8 & 9 – Supernova E3 Mini 2 – 205 lumens
Where can this bike be serviced?

Any Trek electric bike retailer will be equipped to work on the Bosch electronic system.
Can I ride it without the assist?

Yes. With the motor and battery in the middle of the bike, it feels much like a normal bike.  The overall weight is greater due to the battery and motor, but because it is centralised, you won’t feel the transfer of weight like that of a hub motor or rack-mounted battery.
How many assist modes?
Super Commuter+ has 4 levels of power assist from ‘Eco’ to ‘Turbo’ assist.  The assist mode choices give the rider control over how much assist power they’d like to use. Using less assist lets you ride longer, while higher levels of assist are at the ready for acceleration or climbing hills.
How does it charge?

The battery charges in a similar fashion to a smartphone. Plug the charger into a wall outlet and connect the charger to the plug on the side of the downtube or by removing the battery and taking it where you need it.
What if I lose my battery key?

Battery replacement keys are available through your local retailer.
Can I leave the battery on the bike?
Yes.

Is it waterproof?
Yes.
Will replacement batteries be available?
Trek will stock replacement batteries for purchase. Warranty replacement is fulfilled by Bosch service centres.
Can I lock the battery?

Yes, the key must be used to remove it.
What’s the warranty?

Frame – Lifetime.  Motor – 2 years (Bosch). Battery – 500 charge cycles or 2 years (Bosch)
Can I charge by pedalling?
No, regenerative motors are more typical on hub motors.  Trek uses a more efficient mid-drive motor that is integrated into the frame.  Most regenerative motors give negligible energy back to the battery, and sacrifice a lot in efficiency.
Will the lights still work if the battery is dead?
Yes.
What accessories are compatible?
There is a conventional water bottle mount on the downtube, and a folding-style lock like Abus Bordo easily connects underneath the top tube.

Evil Bikes- The Calling- New Evil- Evil Bikes- Evil Frames- U.K- Dealer- Stockist- Demo

EVIL BIKES THE CALLING NOW IN STOCK- CALL 01694 781515 OR CLICK TO GO DIRECT TO BLAZING BIKES EUROPE’S NUMBER ONE EVIL DEALER

UP TO 36 MONTHS 0% FINANCE ON ALL EVIL FULL BIKES, FRAMES AND CUSTOM BUILDS

We are very happy to say the Evil Bikes The Calling has been released and available soon at the U.K’s number one Evil dealer and demo centre Blazing Bikes.

The Calling is the Following’s delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that peddled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.

Evil Bikes The Calling

Evil Bikes The Calling

A CALLING FROM EVIL

Road trippin’, turn slashin’, side-hit-jibbin’, nose-bonkin’, sprint-climbin’ attitude, that’s the Calling. It’s anti-serious technology guarantees good times 69% of the time (the other 31% you’re climbing). With 130mm Delta delivered travel through our finest formed carbon tubing, 27.5″ wheels, and trunnion-mounted-super-deluxe-rear-shock, your only decision is which colour. Push the button.

Available in 2 colours:

Evil Bike The Calling- Angry Dolphin

Evil Bike The Calling- Muddy Waters

Evil Bike The Calling- Muddy Waters

HAVE YOU FOUND YOUR CALLING?

Have you ever wanted a bike that wasn’t like a bike at all? More like your favourite snowboard, or your funnest surfboard, the one that catches all the waves or trashes [pillow] lines faster than Kate Moss in the ’90s. The Calling is your answer. This bike-shaped-skateboard has enough travel to keep you honest, while encouraging you to irresponsibly hit every extra-credit line on the trail.

At this juncture most bike companies would drive in some high-scoring-scrabble words like optimized, nimble or anti-squat technology. But we won’t insult you with that nonsense. The Calling has all the bits and bobs you have come to expect from Evil, and water bottle mounts.

The Calling is the Following’s delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that peddled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.

The Calling is the trails, it’s the road trips, it’s the little side hits on the way, it’s the all-day peddle-fests, the backyard pallet sessions, the pre-work rip, the “I’ll get it this time”, the stories told later in the bar with your best mates, it’s 130mm travel, it’s Super Deluxe, it’s 27.5 or 26+, it’s boost and it’s as stiff as Ron Jeremy.

Features:

BOLT ON AXLE

Our new axle bolts directly into the derailleur hanger for stiff hassle free operation.

CUSTOM ISCG05 MOUNTS

Custom ISCG05 tabs to accommodate our lower guide collaboration with e13 components.

DELTA SYSTEM

Newly designed Trunnion mount to work flawlessly with the new metric shock standard. Upper shock bolts run on bearings for the smoothest feel.

DOWNTUBE PROTECTOR

Molded Rubber Downtube Protector keeps rocks and debris off the plastic and quiets the ride.

E13 CHAINGUIDE

Custom e13 lower guide and bash guard.

INTEGRATED CHAINGUIDE

Fully integrated carbon chainguide to keep that chain on.

INTERNAL ROUTING

Internal routing for stealth dropper posts. Rear derailleur and brake routing is cleanly routed under the toptube and the rear derailleur cable is internally routed through the swingarm to keep things tidy.

PLASTIC FANTASTIC

Uni Directional Carbon with One Piece Molded construction from one of the best factories in the business.

RUBBER PROTECTION

Integrated rubber protection for the chainstay and seat stay to keep things peaceful and quiet in the woods.

SAG METER

We added a fancy integrated SAG meter into the non-drive side Delta Link to make suspension set up easy. Push it forward, sit on your bike, adjust air pressure to 30%, then shred.

We offer all the usual facilities of 3rd party cycle to work schemes and we also offer discounted rates for the business to buy direct.

The Green Commute Initiative isn’t a Cycle to Work scheme but it offers the same tax breaks.  Saving employees between 32% and 42% on bikes they choose.

No £1,000 limit

We finance the bikes so there’s no impact on employer cash-flow. It’s a no cost employee benefit.

No sting in the tail
There’s no 7% fee to pay at the end of the scheme if employees want to own the bike providing even better value than a C2W scheme.

Quick and simple
It’s extremely easy for an employer to set up and complies with all current FCA and HMRC requirements. We do all the administration. It’s equally easy for employees. They can do it all with a smartphone!

Now clear your lungs
E-bikes don’t pollute and their riders suffer much less from poor air quality than car users

Ohlins Mountain Bike product range:

STX 22 Air shock:

Specialized and Öhlins, together offering a new level of performance not seen in air sprung shocks before. Based on the technology used in MX, Öhlins has developed STX22 air with the experience gained from over 300 world titles. STX22 air is released for model year 2016 in an Enduro version, the first in a series of applications to follow also including future aftermarket versions.
Analyzing the demands on an air sprung enduro & Trail shock ÖhlinsSTX concept was the answer. Thanks to the lower damping levels compared to a coil sprung Downhill shock, a less complex product has been developed that still maintains high-performance functionality and offer ride effiency without tampering with downhill control. A large piston diameter balanced by a large compression valve ensures that internal pressures are kept under control, resulting in low hysteresis and excellent damping response.
Low and high speed compression and rebound damping are externally adjustable. The same type of adjusters as the TTX is used with an additional platform damping, a stability mode facilitating long climbs with maintained traction.
The air spring features a new seal system optimized for low friction but also to give a smooth balancing of pressure between the air chambers, The result is initial suppleness supported by mid-stroke control and that extra bottom out resistance coming from air spring characteristics.

TTX 22 Coil shock:

TTX is the only shock technology that truly offers low hysteresis damping performance.  This translates into a ride quality of bump absorption and traction that is unmatched in the industry today.  The shock uses Öhlins patented twin-tube design to separate compression from rebound, and has been custom made for only Specialized.  The TTX also uses spherical bearings on the forward shock mount to allow the shock to rotate while the bike is under side-load, an advancement proven in the motocross industry by greatly improving cornering traction on rough terrain.

Now available in many sizes to fit other bikes than Specialized! Please let us know Make, Model and Year of your bike.

Price excludes spring.

RFX 34 Forks:

The new Öhlins RXF 34 for mountain bikes is specifically designed for the Specialized Camber, Stumpjumper and Enduro models. All high-end 29er trail/AM bikes that demands low weight and high performance.

The fork features a twin tube design and implements the Öhlins TTX technology to the front end of the bike. The fork provides optimal pressure at all times. Controlling the pressure levels ensures initial smoothness and staying high in travel with maintained bump absorption, traction and stability.

Contrary to most of the forks currently available on the market, the shape of the spring force can be adjusted, such as increasing sensitivity without bottoming out. Everything is brought together by a uniquer forged uni crown for high stiffness and the highest tire control with less chassis flex. It all means it is a 34mm fork that are more rigid than 35mm forks and makes it comparable with a 36mm fork.

Technical Specifications:

  • Weight approx. 2050 g
  • Length 573 mm (axle to crown)
  • Tapered steerer tube 28,6 – 38,1 mm
  • Stroke 160 mm
  • Stanchion tubes 34 mm
  • Axle 15 x 100 mm
  • Offset 46 mm
  • Designed for wheel size 29
  • Aluminium design, hard anodized
  • Shaft and crown from one piece (uni crown design). Use headset bearing with dimensions45°/45° x 51.9 x 40.0 mm.
  • Fully servicable and rebuildable
  • 2 years limited warranty

RFX 36 Forks:

ollowing up last year’s success with RXF 34, the fork that revolutionized mountain biking, it is time to go even stiffer and wider.Öhlins is now releasing it´s bigger brother, RXF 36, building on the same technology as the RXF 34, implementing TTX technology in the front fork. The RXF 36 is cross-compatible between Boost 29” and 650b+, as well as some 650b frames. Expanding the capabilities of the modern trail bike, adding even more traction and stability without adding unnecessary weight.

Available in 120mm, 140mm, 150mm, and 160mm travel, the RXF 36 covers the lot. The fork features a twin tube design, enabling parallel and separated oil flow to ensure optimal pressure at all times. Controlling the pressure levels ensures initial smoothness and staying high in travel with maintained bump absorption, traction and stability. Low and high speed compression are externally adjustable. The unique forged uni crown enhances stiffness and stability while reducing chassis flex.

Why boost? With the wider hub flange, and the stronger spoke-bracing angle, the stiffness and stability of the wheel is massively enhanced, at a tiny weight penalty, resulting in more effective and more precise
bike handling.

Technical Specifications:

  • Weight approx. 2050 g
  • Length 528,5 mm (axle to crown)
  • Tapered steerer tube 28,6 – 38,1 mm

MTB Cartridge kit:

Öhlins started as a company making shocks for MX back in the 70s and has since then always worked to push the ­boundaries of performance. Fork cartridge kits has during the last years become an important part of the Öhlins MX portfolio and next step is now to start introduce that concept into DH racing.
The STX22 cartridge kit is based on what is available for MX and share a lot of features. It is the result of using ­experience gained from working at the top level racing around the world and offers a new level of performance not seen in DH forks before. Focus on what makes a rider to go as fast as ­possible, control, confidence and balance makes this kit to stand out from other damping systems. The damping ­response makes it possible to use higher level of damping without the harshness which otherwise is a common result and thus improving bike control and front end grip which better ­balance the bike when using the Öhlins TTX 22 rear shock. That control coupled with the low pressure system makes it the most powerful cartridge kit available on the market.
The STX22 kit has been designed to rise very low above the fork leg ends, thus allowing the forks to be mounted far up in the triple clamps with a small clearance to the handlebars. This allows for lower bikes for the smaller riders in the class. ­Compression adjuster is easily reachable as it is angled out from underneath the handlebar.

Features

  • Adjustable compression and rebound
  • Spring pressurized system to compensate for heat changes and provide reliable damping behavior
  • Will work with both airspring forks and coils spring forks
  • Independent from inner tube design and fits all Fox 40 forks from 2012- 2015
  • The cartridge kit is completely closed and easy to install in the front fork

With the recently-released Remedy 27.5 taking on more aggressive All-Mountain to enduro duties, it left a conspicuous long-travel 29er hole in Trek’s lineup. Retailers, riders, and MTB editors were all skeptical that Trek would walk away from Remedy 29’s popularity among riders, enduro racers, and media. Trek didn’t. Rather, theye raised the bar for all long travel 29ers with an all-new Slash featuring 29” wheels for a new focus on both speed and capability.

New Slash is built for one thing: top-tier enduro racing. With that in mind, Trek designed it around the fastest-rolling 29” wheel size, and 150mm of rear travel for the best balance of capability and efficiency. Like the new Fuel EX & Remedy, Slash gets a Straight Shot downtube with Knock Block frame defense for DH-like frame stiffness at trail-bike weight. Staying true to its beat-the-clock focus, Slash comes in carbon only, with two complete bike models, as well as a frameset. Enduro-minded spec including reservoir shocks, travel-adjust forks, 1x-drivetrains, and SuperEnduro tires make both Slash models ready to slay some stages right out of the box.

Expect to see the new Slash 29er in action under Trek’s top enduro racers this summer, in. This new, category-defining halo product will help set you and Trek apart from the rest of the industry.

What’s new with 2017 Slash?

With the new 2017 Remedy moving deeper into All-Mountain territory, new Slash sets its sights squarely on Enduro racing. With that in mind, we designed it around a carbon frame with the fastest-rolling wheel size. All 2017 Slash models use 29” wheels with Boost110 & Boost148 hub spacing. Rear travel moves to 150mm for the right balance of capability and efficiency. Both models get Enduro-minded 130mm/160mm forks which offer a better climbing position in the 130mm setting, and more confident descending in the 160mm setting.

Like the Fuel EX & Remedy, Slash gets a Straight Shot downtube with Knock Block frame defense for DH-worthy frame stiffness with no added weight. It also gets our extra-versatile Control Freak cable routing system to tie it all together.

How many Slash bike models are there?

Two. Both the Slash 9.8 and Slash 9.9 RSL share the same race-ready, full-carbon, 1x-specific frame.

What does Race Shop Limited mean?

Race Shop Limited, or RSL models are built with a parts spec that meets the demands of our top-level Enduro racers, including extra suspension adjustments, a Rapid Drive rear hub, and the new SRAM X01 Eagle 1×12 drivetrain.

Is Slash available as a frameset?

Yes. Slash is available as a frameset, which includes a Fox Factory Float X2 shock, Knock Block headset, and Line Pro 35mm stem.

What are the available sizes for Slash?

All Slash models are available in 15.5, 17.5, 19.5, and 21.5.

While most other long-travel 29ers suffer from design constraints that don’t allow for a Small frame size, Slash benefits from Trek’s decade of 29er experience, allowing us to offer a fast, great-handling 15.5” long-travel 29er.

Why doesn’t the new Slash use Full Floater?

We developed Full Floater years ago to address performance constraints associated with the air shocks that were available at that time. Since then, mountain bike shocks have evolved. More dynamic and responsive dampers, along with more refined air springs like EVOL and Debonair, offer the performance benefits our engineers sought to achieve with Full Floater.

Using a fixed lower shock mount opens up the lower frame area, giving us more opportunity to design stronger, stiffer frames and chainstays. This also gives us more flexibility to accommodate larger, more capable shocks. All of these effects are experienced most dramatically on long travel bikes, like the Slash.

Then why is Full Floater still on new Fuel EX and Remedy?

Full Floater works great on short to mid-travel bikes where engineering requirements are not so challenging. The demanding combination of design requirements – frame stiffness, bigger 29” wheel size, long travel, and fitting piggyback shocks– of the new Slash 29 presented the greatest opportunity to incorporate a new direction in suspension layout.

What front derailleurs work with the new frame?
None. The carbon chainstay is 1x only, which allowed our engineers to optimize stiffness and weight, as well as keep the length down to 435mm.

Is Slash compatible with other aftermarket shocks?

Yes. Slash uses new standard metric shock sizing (230×57.5mm).

Does Slash use a G2 fork?

Yes. It’s a 29er, and we know that our G2 Geometry with a 51mm offset fork still makes for the best 29er handling at any speed, on any terrain.

What Mino Link position is standard out of the box?

All MY17 full suspension bikes (EXCEPT Top Fuel and Session) will ship with the Mino Link in the High (steeper) setting. This gives Slash a headtube angle of 65.6 out of the box.

Is the new frame compatible with 27.5 Plus wheels and tires? 27.5?

No. We designed Slash around 29” wheels and tires for maximum speed. Running any other wheel/tire size will adversely affect handling and speed.

What is the max tire size for Slash frames?

29 x 2.6”
